Josep Cabré

Choir and singing

Josep Cabré has worked for a long time with the most prestigious ensembles devoted to historical interpretation, among which Hesperion XX, Huelgas Ensemble, La Chapelle Royale, Ensemble Organum, Ensemble Gilles Binchois, Sequentia, with repertoires ranging from the Middle Ages to the Baroque. He is currently collaborating with the Daedalus ensemble (Geneva) and the organist Jean Charles Ablitzer.

He is a founding member of the vocal quartet La Colombina. With this ensemble he has performed in many concerts and has recorded a number of records. He is often invited to teach specialised courses in various institutions (University of Mexico, UNAM, Flanders Festival, Centre International les Chemins du Baroque...). He also teaches at Musikene, the Higher School of Music of the Basque Country, in San Sebastian, and at the Conservatory in Perpignan.

Josep Cabré founded the Companyia Musical ensemble for the performance of Renaissance and Baroque repertoires away from the mainstream, from plainchant to polyphony. He was the conductor of the Capilla Peñaflorida (San Sebastián) and artistic director and conductor of the Coral de Cámara de Pamplona. He has carried out intensive work on the performance and recording of Hispanic repertoires from the Renaissance and the Baroque with both ensembles.

All this activity crystallises in frequent radio productions and the recording of around a hundred records for different labels (Accent, Harmonia Mundi, Almaviva, Tactus, K617, NB....), many of which have been awarded prizes by the specialised critics.
